Fall -- What I Like About You!

What I like about fall --
 almost everything!
 


 
 
Fall has arrived and we are thrilled!! 
Such a perfect time of year and makes me totally forget
the next season we will be enjoying . . .
 
 

 
Maddy and I thought about visiting the pumpkin patch
last weekend, but ended up we didn't have time, so
we headed to a local nursery to look at their pumpkins! 
Don't you love the gnarly looking ones!
 
 
 
 
We couldn't wait til our visit to the pumpkin patch, so we bought a few. 
We also requested the nasty spray
so the devil squirrels
 that live around here would not chomp on and destroy
our pumpkins immediately. 
 
Sorry squirrels, it had to be done!!


Look -- a giant acorn/gourd/pumpkin!! 
 
Silly Mickey jumped into the gourd barrels!

 
 
Guess what else we like about fall?
 
Cool fall plants  --
seriously -- kale is this gorgeous?!!!
If I could kiss it, I would -- it is just
that pretty and makes me happy every time I see it!
 
 
 
And we also like . . .
 
Baking brownies, and
 
Running in the morning when it's really chilly and dark
(even though the cool weather makes it
hard to drag myself out of bed, but
must run due to eating said brownies), and
  
Wearing socks again, and

Digging out the fluffy robes,and

Sweaters, and

My new fave accessory --
infinity scarves!!
No more worries about how to tie it.




Yes, I am a trend setter!! ;)

What do you like about fall?

Yippee for fall! Gorgeous pumpkin varieties. A perfect place for a photoshoot. I'm so proud of you for running in the early morning. I definitely think I need more scarves.

We have our Thanksgiving this weekend. So I am decorating and preparing.

Hope you are well my friend.
